Landing the job you want in 2022 isn’t easy. The economy and workforce are still grappling with COVID-19 as we move into the new year, and there’s plenty of competition for good positions.

However, the best way to get a job hasn’t changed. Writing a professional resume that advertises your relevant skills, experience, and achievements is the key to attracting the attention of employers and earning an interview.

But writing a good resume is easier said than done, especially if you lack formal work experience. To help you succeed on your job hunt, we explain exactly how to write a good resume in 10 basic steps, and provide detailed examples along the way:

• Resumes that capture attention in the first 3 seconds
• There's a right way and a very wrong way
• The five most important components and how to write them
• Why most resumes are getting tossed
• Tailoring your resume to the job
• If you are trying to reach the next level
• Resume tips for older workers
• Why the summary is the most important part of the resume
• Sample resumes
• How to make the experience section stand out
• How software reads your resume and why keywords are important
• What's out-of-date and what's hot, hot, hot

This highly informative, important workshop is a must-do. You always need an updated resume, even when you are not actively seeking a position - you just never know when that dream job will come along.

In a perfect world, employers would recognize the very real value that an "older" employee can bring to their organizations. However, this is not a perfect world. The reality is that all too many hiring managers subconsciously discriminate against older workers. And that discrimination is only becoming more pronounced in the emerging digital age.

Today’s hiring managers often assume that older workers just can’t keep pace with today’s ever-evolving technology and business paradigms. As a result, many will simply dismiss a seasoned candidate’s resume without a second thought. In this webinar, you will learn how not to bring on age discrimination.
